About time

McDonald’s latest menu has dropped as it switches things up for October.

From yesterday (Wednesday, October 18), seven brand new items are on the Maccies menu, including two new burgers – the McCrispy BBQ Smokehouse and the Philly Cheese Stack.

The McCrispy BBQ Smokehouse is made up of 100 per cent chicken breast fillet in a crispy, crunchy coating with a smoky BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, red onion, lettuce, all in a delicious sourdough style sesame topped bun.

Meanwhile, the Philly Cheese Stack delivers the ultimate cheesy experience with two succulent beef patties with a cheese sauce, two cheese slices, grilled and crispy onions and pickles served in a toasted bun.

And there’s more for you cheese lovers, with Chilli Cheese Bites returning to the menu as well.

Each portion contains four chilli cheese bites in a crispy batter served alongside a rich tomato dip.

There’s some brand new desserts for those of you with a sweet tooth as well, that are themed around the upcoming spooky season.

The new menu sees the addition of four limited-edition dessert items featuring two spooky McFlurrys, and a brand new toffee twist on McDonald’s classic apple pie – Toffee Apple Pie.

The new McFlurry flavours are a Twix Toffee Apple McFlurry, featuring a Twix biscuit with chocolate pieces and apple sauce, and a M&M’s Halloween McFlurry, soft dairy ice cream swirled with M&Ms and Halloween sugar shapes and topped with Galaxy Chocolate sauce.

Along with the Toffee Apple Pie, which is the classic crispy pastry filled with a spiced apple compote & toffee sauce and toffee pieces, the Toffee Apple Donut is also hitting menus. This is a ring donut filled with toffee apple compote, topped with crumble pieces & toffee sauce.

Two toffee apple-themed desserts are arriving ahead of Halloween as well
